Essential Oils Toolkit for Pyrrole Kids Headed Back to School

    Ah, back to school. After a long hot summer, there is nothing like sending your gorgeous off-spring back to the classroom.

    Unless of course, your kids are anything like mine and they hate school with a passion.

    Don’t get me wrong my kids are bright and they do okay academically, but school is definitely not their ‘thing.’ Out of my 5 pyrrole kids only 1 of them hasn’t ‘hated’ school.

The fuzzy brain, the headache, trying to beat the urge to run away from home and the whine of “I’m hungry” from the kids (oh wait that’s not from the carb addiction).

        Going Back in Time

        So I’m going to go back into my own personal timeline and then take a short walk down humanities timeline.

        I started figuring out my personal health issues because of my mad desire to help my kids out.  Figuring out their problems helped me figure out my own.  I now know that I have a MTHFR mutation and Pyrrole Disorder and this over time has caused a lot grief in my own health.

          What is Dandruff?

          Before we talk about how to get rid of dandruff, let’s talk about what exactly it is. We all know the tell-tale signs of dandruff; those charming white flakes all over the shoulders, scratching your head and it looking like you’ve been caught in a snow storm – charming, right?

          Dandruff is a skin disorder affecting up to 50 percent of the world population at some point in their life.

                Reduce the Toxic Load in Your Environment

                I discussed in a previous article the role that oxidative stress plays in worsening Pyrrole symptoms. While we can’t control a lot of the toxins we are exposed to ‘out in the world,’ we can actively reduce environmental toxins in our homes.  This is the first in a series of tips on how we can help reduce the toxic load in the home.  We will work from room to room and look at ways we can reduce chemicals and other toxins in the home which helps to reduce oxidative stress and subsequently Pyrrole symptoms

                    Managing life with Pyrrole requires a multi-pronged approach.  Diet, supplements, and environmental influences.  One of my favorite tools is essential oils. Oils are extremely versatile and can be used in so many ways from diffusing, applying topically to making cleaning products, home remedies and even in cooking.
